2017 Honda WR-V Reviews and Prices – The Honda WR-V 2017 is the first model of what can be called “new wave of smaller SUVs”. This is far from a downside to the launch. In fact, if there is an automaker that has reason to want to launch new SUVs in its line, it certainly is Honda.
Following HR-V’s success, Honda began planning to launch a more affordable segment. The idea is to compete directly with Duster and EcoSport – a fairly bold fight.
For this, it relied on its smaller vehicle, taking advantage of its spacious model aura. The launch of the WR-V 2017 was scheduled for early 2016, but delayed due to the slowdown of the industry here.
